We met Al through a mutual friend, and that was our good fortune. We enjoyed his wit and kindness, and respected his strong connection to the UU community. His legacy will surely endure.

Our aquaintance goes back to when our kids were at High Point Swim Club and has continued through the exchange of Christmas e-mails last year. From boat and RV we had many delightful visits with Al and Marian in Naples. Al, the consummate host, always made us feel most welcome, so that we always looked forward to the next time we would get together.

Like all of Al's friends, I treasured our friendship, which started as a result of our love of bridge. We went to the Homewood Retirement Apartments to play with the seniors there every week for at least two years and took turns driving, which gave us the opportunity to enjoy long chats along the way.

Al was very knowledgeable and was very generous with his time. He spent hours installing my computer and teaching me how to use it.

I was deeply saddened to see him struggling with his failing health after his heart surgery. He so badly wanted his life back. He will be greatly missed and remembered with love.

Al's daughter, Elizabeth and I were best friends in grade school and our parents were friends through the church. I always thought Al was super cool...quirky but cool.....who else did I know that had Volvo's or tended huge gardens or allowed us to drive a tractor to mow their huge lawn(Elizabeth probably won't remember this so fondly!)?? He was fun to be around. I think he actually enjoyed being with young people, sharing in the adventure. I loved his laugh!! I am grateful to have known Al.

Al was a very patient, competent man who helped me a great deal in preparing ads, annoucements, and flyers for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Naples. When something went wrong on his computer, I would panic. Al would just say, "That's curious." Then, step by steady step, he would seek out the problem and solve it. What a great guy and friend! We all at UU deeply miss him.
